A Personal Reminder for Patience

Following up on yesterday’s mini vent, here’s a reminder I printed up for myself.
 
Patience reminder
 
I find it helpful to have the little reminders to glance at when I am having a hard time.
I pray for patience with myself more than with anyone else.
I hold myself to a higher standard than is necessary and it makes me more stressed when I can’t even be patient with myself. 
The quote from Eknath Easwaran, (who was a spiritual teacher) is especially pertinent for me personally. 
Patience cannot be acquired overnight.
I need to work on it every day.
 
I’m trying damn hard.
And as Mr. Dumas said, I’m hoping.
 
What do you have more trouble with?
Patience or tolerance?
